Desert Sled
Price: 428.900.000 VND

The Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled faithfully revives that spirit – but without abandoning the unique Scrambler lifestyle values – and extends the new Bologna- built brand into the “easy off-road” sector. Thanks to the modified frame and suspension, the spoked wheels (19″ at the front) and ground-breaking lines, this bike is simply perfect for those who want to be able to get off the asphalt and take a less-beaten track. The off-road capability of the Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled is also evident in the type-approved headlight mesh guard, the high mudguards (specially designed for this version) and, of course, the engine skid plate.

Thanks to a higher seat (a 20 mm lower one is available as an optional), suspension with extended travel (now 200 mm) and off-road style footpegs with removable rubber pads, this Scrambler is also characterised by a new riding position. The passenger pegs – separated from the rider’s – are removable.

The Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled inherits its logo from the Urban Enduro and is a natural evolution of the latter towards a more off-road style.

Owner's Manual

803 cc
Straight from the desert and mountains of California, Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled makes its entry in the Land of Joy, an enduro version inspired by the world of off-road motorcycles that made history in the United States during the 60s and 70s.

The name Desert Sled refers to standard motorcycles over 500 cc that were modified by riders for use in the Californian desert with knobbly tyres, reinforced suspensions, spoked wheels and engine protection plates to protect the bike against the debris of impassable desert roads. The Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled perfectly reflects this spirit without forgetting lifestyle values, and expands the Ducati Scrambler family with a new version dedicated to off-road style.

Desert Sled inherits the Urban Enduro logo as it is its explicit evolution. In fact, it is to its strong offroad character that we owe the new riding position characterised by a higher seat, a reinforced frame and fully adjustable suspension, the presence of a type-approved grid on the front headlight, the engine protection, and with the new Pirelli ScorpionTM Rally STR tyres with spoked wheels 19” front / 17” rear.
